Breaking news: Fabrizio Romano reports that a Lyon superstar is close to signing with Manchester United ahead of Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s arrival at the club. Ratcliffe sees this player as a crucial transfer target and aims to restore greatness to Manchester United with his imminent arrival.

Footballwave understands that Manchester United is keeping an eye on Lyon star Rayan Cherki as they get ready to welcome Sir Jim Ratcliffe to the team.


“The 20-year-old player has been associated with a potential move to the Premier League for quite some time. However, due to Ratcliffe’s imminent arrival, the Red Devils have pinpointed Cherki as a significant transfer target. Ratcliffe, the current owner of Ligue 1’s OGC Nice, aims to bring Cherki to Old Trafford in 2024, leveraging his connections in France.

Cherki, an attacking midfielder capable of playing as a right winger, has appeared 17 times for Lyon this season but has yet to score a goal. While mostly fielded as a No.10 for Lyon, if he joins Man Utd, he’s likely to occupy the right flank due to Fernandes and Mount’s presence.

Despite Antony currently filling that role at Old Trafford, Man Utd still seek a new forward. Cherki is on their radar, yet Erik ten Hag also eyes a center-forward to support Rasmus Hojlund. Players like Timo Werner, Serhou Guirassy, Donyell Malen, and potentially Mason Greenwood, who’s on loan at Getafe, have been linked.

Regarding Greenwood, Real Madrid and Barcelona have shown interest, but Getafe, where he’s on loan, is keen on a permanent deal, despite opposition from board members and the women’s team.”
